A favorite success story is that of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia’s Argus implementation. They needed both a web-based collections management system and mobile functionality for staff and visitors, and tools that optimize operational efficiency, while at the same time providing a flexible, extensible system that met Provincial requirements for information security, especially robust and granular permissions management. With Argus we succeeded in making gallery staff and the IT department happy, all within budget—and the CMS delivers visible, tangible support for the organizational mandate to increase public exposure to the greatest extent possible.
